Bold black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam tea is known for a deep, burgundy-red cup and pungent flavor. Our Assam Melody is perfect for tea drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of Assam. Rich aroma, more sweet starchy than malty, like roasted plantains. Rounded mouthfeel, malty without being overpowering. Slight notes of raisin. Brisk astringency and not extremely pungent. A solid, 'friendly' Assam, from the well-regarded Meleng Estate. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Interesting flavor. A bit too strong compared to what I usually drink but honestly, I fully enjoyed it. Who can say no to a good black tea?

      Great tea for those of us that like a strong full bodied tea. When supermarket brands are weak for you, this is what you are looking for.

      Dark, bold and tastes great. I enjoy it with milk!

      Full-bodied and slightly mineral. An excellent blend that can hold up to any additions. Great for mornings or an afternoon pick-me-up!

      This is a great full bodied tea. Nice with some milk or cream.

      This is a very thick full-body tea. I usually like my black tea to be super dark but not so much with this one. It would be a great afternoon 'pick me up' tea or to go with a late-night study session. When I make it again I am adding vanilla to go with the smokey professor's study smell/flavor that it has.

      There's just something about this blend - from the earthy, hay smell of the leaves, to just that warmth you get from the flavor. It's undeniably comforting.

      A classic! One of my dad's favorites. It's a bit too dark for me, but still very enjoyable.

    • Tammy Chidester


      It's the perfect tea when you need a pick me up that tastes great!
